    I worked at McMillan full-time (More than a year)


    I worked at McMillan for a few years and was always treated well, fairly. Sadly, I was let go during a restructuring which was caused by a downturn in business. That being said, life goes on and I have some solid work in my portfolio and enjoyed my time there working with a lot of super talented people. Ended too soon for me!


    Just miss the great folks I worked with there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep aiming for strong creative work with clients who allow it to happen.

    User Experience Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McMillan (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in February 2018.


    Panel interview with your potential manager and director at the office. There were two in-person interviews. The first interview included challenging and comprehensive questions. The nature of the job available was thoroughly explained. I brought in my portfolio and had a chance to show it and discuss at length. Lots of question and answer time in the end. Relaxed environment but questions were appropriately challenging. The first interview took around 1 hour and 20 minutes. The second interview was about logistics and timing and took around 40 minutes.
